Shushan Purim on a Friday ?

B”H
While taking a look into my calender I saw that this year, Shushan Purim is falling on a Friday. I cannot remember celebrating Shushan Purim right before Shabbat comes in. Reading the Megillah seems very clear: Thursday night and Friday morning. But how about the Se’udah ? Is the festive meal still taking place on Friday afternoon ?
To be honest: I looked through the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch and Masechet Megillah but, so far, I haven’t found anything about Shushan Purim on a Friday. My first guess was that it would be delayed to Sunday but apparently not. The Purim Halachot mainly refer to the Megillah but not necessarily to the Se’udah.
Does anyone know if in Jerusalem we really have a rather short Purim this year, as Shabbat is coming in on Friday evening ?
